Now singer turned writer Etcetera writes about celebs and why some of their marriages fail. Read below...
If you listen to relationship programmes on radio, you would notice that many Nigerians are indeed struggling with their relationships and marriages and they are all seeking help. And because they do not have a glaring media attention serialising their issues, making judgments, giving strong commentary, poking them emotionally, there are chances of their relationships and marriages problems being solved.
Why is it that with the fame, fortune and good looks, our celebrities’ marriages still don’t work? It has been a strange phenomenon that the union of people in the limelight hardly lasts, indeed. So the question is, why do most celebrity marriages crash frequently?

Sting says his six children will not inherit his $300m fortune

Sting, in a recent interview said he'd told his children not to expect to inherit a dime of his money because he doesn't believe in trust funds, and has advised them to go make their own money.
"I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work.
